Brazil's hot, humid climate lends itself to be the perfect place to grow coffee. That being said, Brazil is one of the highest coffee producing countries in the world. Despite the large amount of coffee that is produced in Brazil, more than 70% of the coffee farms in Brazil are less than 10 acres. Smaller farms have unique processing practices, and each farm adds its own special touch to the coffee beans; however, all farms conform to the same coffee standards to ensure a high-quality product.
The coffee beans are hand-harvested and dry-processed; the dry process method involves drying the cherries, and removing the beans once the cherries are dried. This process adds a slightly fruity flavor to the coffee, resulting in a light-bodied, full-flavored, sweet, and complex brew. Treat yourself to the wonderful flavors of Brazil Santos gourmet coffee.
